How many do you have?
I have at least 31 first cousins, possibly more.
Who’s ya favourite?
Liza would be my favourite. Ten years older than me, into all the same music. She used to come to all our gigs when we played in her town and we went to see Grandaddy together. Don’t see her as much since she’s had kids but she’s brilliant and I get on really well with her.
Who’s the black sheep?
I don’t think there is one to be honest. Though we all followed different paths no-one stands out too much. Maybe Smokey for his drug-dealing days in the 2000s but even he’s straightened out now.
Are you type that is friends with your cousins or the type that might see them once a decade at gatherings?
Was really good friends with my second cousin until a massive falling out which saw me kick him out of my parents’ house. See most of the rest at weddings, funerals and at Christmas. They’re a good bunch.
Banged any of em?
My dad has 3 cousins and my mum has 99 cousins, mad that innit?
